From the lofty Piton, or hilltop, of Sancerre, ancient soils of limestone and silex cascade toward the western bank of Loire River. This distinct soil, perched on a base of Kimmeridgian marl, is why Sauvignon Blanc from Sancerre has found its way onto the world's top restaurant wine lists. This is a wine with an aristocratic heritage and a welcoming character.
A delicate perfume of white flowers with hints of citrus and flint give way to a silken texture and grapefruit-laced finish. Balanced and crisp, this is a wine destined for the finest tables, but happiest among a humble goat cheese topped salad.

OK. Not bad, not great. Passable.
Sancerre is my favorite white and when I saw this selection I had to try it. I'm happy to say that I was not disappointed and will definitely reorder. It was everything a Sancerre should be: light and crisp with a very satisfying finish. Sancerre is often difficult to find at a reasonable price -- this one is worth the price.
